ds, put out a lot of anti president obama books including edward klein's "the amateur," david limbaugh's "the great destroyer," charles kessler's i am the change, obama's america, quite critical of president obama. do these books sell well? >> they do largely because they serve rightly or wrongly as a counterpoint. many readers wish to buy into at and as a result of these books have a very active audience and president obama has been reelected, i am sure these publishers with conservative inference or conservatively inclined will predict to sell well and they will continue to appeal to an audience that demand these books. >> have you interviewed these critical of others? >> no. let's see. glen beck, but he is not recently taken on exactly president obama. sort of interesting. this is generally true, whoever's in power in the white house, the opposite political slant does better. liberal democrat in the white house, when there's a conservative in the white house, president bush, critical of the president and do better. it was being questioned about jobs or something and he said
for the victims. listen to this tape. >> hello. good morning, king edward vii. >> hello, there. can i please speak to kate, my granddaughter. >> are they putting us through? >> yes. >> i mean, absolutely unbelievable. so, kate middleton, or the duchess of cambridge, as she is now, is in hospital with this morning sickness, having revealed she's progress. and some dumb aussie deejay rings up with a twang accent. and they think it's the queen of england. i feel personally affronted. alan dershowitz, have you ever heard anything so ludicrous? >> it's the worst imitation i've ever heard. >> ever. there's a corgi in the background. >> i thought it was you. >> deejays are allowed to be ridiculous and funny. of all of the problems in the world this, is not the most serious one. >> carol, quickly. >> they're the ones that were dumb. they put the call through. >> i don't blame the nurse. i don't blame the nurse talking to them. she had been put through by the receptionist, with the immortal words, the queen's on the phone. what are you supposed to say? >> i think it's innocent. it gave us a laugh today. >>
of all three of them. and, of course, marvin kalb, who is the edward r. murrow professor emeritus at the harvard school of government and to contribute news analyst for npr and fox news channel, and is frequently called upon to comment on major issues of the day by many other leading organizations, and also he is very dear to her heart here at afsa. history to serve as moderator and has done a superb job every time. very happy to have you back, marvin. thank you so much. let me just go back and say just a word about the in depth knowledge, the skill, the dedication and perseverance of each of you present today, who worked on the negotiating team for the process that led up to it. really did not just bring this to tuition -- fruition. it required outstanding diplomacy and capacity to balance the risks and demand of piece and the sort of okay security environment of the cold war period, which perhaps most people to remember, but perhaps some do not. so before turning the program over to marvin though, i would just like to mention, we have a new book that is very pertinent to the sub
of weight loss programs is also losing executives. this time it's its acting cfo, edward powers, resigning no later than january 4th according to an s.e.c. filing. this comes of course in the wake of the resignation of the firm's prior cfo back in november. again, its shares taking a hit on that news, down almost 13%. simon, back to you. >>> thank you very much. in today's yahoo! finance poll, we asked you one measure of holiday sales indicating the weakest pace of recovery since 2008. what is your take? the vast majority of you, two-thirds almost, saying that uncertainty over the fiscal cliff is holding you back. of course, we saw that in the survey data time and time again. now it may be appearing in the real numbers as we head towards that deadline five days and counting. now let's see what's coming up on "street signs." >>> coming up at the top of this hour, forget the fiscal cliff. we are staring down the barrel of a container cliff as unions are threatening to shut down ports along the eastern seaboard. also, we peer in netflix's christmas eve outage. what does it mean for the compan
three of them. of course, marvin, who is the edward r murrow professor at harvard kennedy school of government, and contributing news analysts for npr and fox news channel. he's frequently called upon to comment on major issues of the day by many other leading news organizations. and also he's very dear to our heart here because he's frequently served as moderator and done a great job every time. we're happy to have you back thank you so much. let me just go back and say a word about the in-depth knowledge, the skill, the dedication and the perseverance of each of you present today. who worked on the negotiated teams or the process that lead up to it. really did not just bring this treaty to fruition but also reflect the practice of diplomacy at its best. it required, you know, outstanding diplomacy and -- to plan the risk and demands of peace in the opaque security environment of the cold war period, which perhaps most people here remember perhaps some do not. [laughter] so before turning the program over to marvin, though, i would like to mention that we have a new book that is
: edward-isaac dovere, thank you for being with us. guest: thank you. host: the senate action getting underway about 11:00 a.m. and we will have live coverage of what happens on each floor of the chamber as lawmakers will meet with reporters. this is from joseph ramirez. "the blame game continues" is the headline from "usa today." charles is joining us from texas. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i think we are in trouble either way. president obama was known to be the most extravagant senator when he was in office and never had a job as far as i know of. it seems like he has a bottomless bank account. given money away like in new york and new jersey. $60 billion or $80 billion. don't they have insurance of the up there? host: thank you for the call. is this from bill king. this is bob, good morning. caller: happy new year. host: to you, too. caller: all the republican party has to do is to allow for what the voters voted on by putting obama back in office, which was the mandate that people earning above $250,000 pay 4.5%.eer lousy that is not a hair off their chinn
, including making it possible for us to hire such extraordinary people like steve edwards and been restored and all of the other people -- and ben reeseberg and all the other people. [applause] you have been wondering what i have been doing and i have been wondering what you have been doing. [laughter] >> those who were disappointed by this outcome, the democrats elated by this outcome -- given the conventional wisdom around this campaign, the president's approval ratings that were barely above 50%, often dipping below it, the unemployment around 8%, gdp growth stock of around 2% -- the conventional wisdom was that should -- that this president should not be reelected. as you take a look at what happened two weeks ago, how do you assess this? >> let me just say first that i made a very good living and politics betting against conventional wisdom. it is a general principle of mine that the conventional wisdom is almost always wrong and it was wrong here. it was wrong here because what we often do in political circles and journalism is that we look at what happened in the last election or pas
a short distance from here in the week where when she was working here at the edward vii hospital in central london in the staff quarters there. that's where her body was found. yeah, you're right. a lot of anger expressed on the social media about this. also a lot of sadness and sympathy being expressed with those associated with the death, first and foremost the duke and duchess of cambridge. they have issued a statement expressing their statement saying how wonderfully well in their words they were treated by the hospital staff during the time that katherine, the duchess of cambridge, was treated here for her very severe morning sickness. the hospital has come out as well, the management of the hospital saying that they are very regretful and sad about what happened and paying tribute to a nurse that was with them for the last four years and who they say treated hundreds of patients very well indeed. also, you mentioned the ceo of the company that owns that radio station in sydney that made the prank call. he's come out and issued his regret as well but also sort of indicating
. police officer edward norton in boston jumps in the frigid water to save a woman's life. it is not clear how the woman fell into the water but a witness says that he threw his car into park and leapt into the water after her, carrying a life saving ring with him as you can see, the woman is being treated for are hypothermia but is expected to fully recover. >>> after more than a year, president obama has finally begun to release his regulatory agenda. the u.s. law requires federal agencies to publicly report proposed regulations that will have a significant impact directly to congress. we now know from the government's website from the department of labor that just within the last four months more than 6,000 new proposed regulations are pending. shannon bream is investigating the onslaught of new regulations and spoke with the founder and president of the media research center who says the media has failed to keep the american public informed about this. >> nobody is reporting the truth about obama care. you know, p.j. o'rourke made a great observation 20 years ago when said if you think
capacity to keep america's economy moving as well. >> thank you. i yield to ms. edwards. >> thank you, mr. chairman, and thank you to our witnesses and also for your patience. as you can tell there's a lot of interest on this committee, even on an off day around high-speed rail. so thank you very much. secretary, some on this committee criticized the administration for higher speed rail. i wonder if you can tell us about some of the improvement writers would see as a result of investments that are investing in high-speed rail and not just high-speed rail, and why that would be important? >> well, as an engine in washington state since 1994, we have been working on an incremental approach to growing passenger rail service in our state. as we have additional round trips, additional speeds and additional reliability of service, we are fund our ridership growing year over year. when you think about the unique characteristics of different states, for us in oregon, the specific testing pacific northwest and the ipod quarter, the northwest corridor for us is linking between some pretty rural are
care. king edward viirupt where the nurse worked has released a statement saying it was extremely foolish of your presenters to even consider trying to lie their way through to one of our patients, let alone actually make the call. they went on to call the actions of the australian radio station appalling. let's get more reaction from senior international correspondent matthew chance. >> a lot of sadness and a lot of anger being directed against the radio station in sydney, australia. and the two deejays who carried out this prank call to this hospital here in central london. and a lot of their social media places like facebook have had to be taken down because of the messages of abuse from around the world that have been posted on them. also, the ceo of the company that owns the radio station has issued a public statement as well expressing his regret and saturdayness and indicating he does not think that legally there were any laws broken by the two deejays. they have been suspended, though, and the show has been taken off the air until further notice. take a listen to what that
going forward. charles edwards with the brookings institution. >> someone like matt damon will make convincing actor, undoubtedly casting concerns about shale gas on the horizon. that will probably become a lot of people's perceptions that shale gas is not safe. >> reporter: now the industry acknowledges with any industrial production like shale gas there is environmental impact but that the risks to the environment, martha, can be minimalized if the practice is done responsibly and industry really says it is trying to do that. martha: well that is tough battle for them. what will they do about it, john? >> reporter: they have a low-key p.r. campaign, to say wait a minute, when you watch the movie it is telling one side of the story but they are prepared to ramp that up depending what the public response is. analysts say the industry can't come out and either dismiss the film orvillefy it. they really need to launch a comprehensive and thoughtful rebuttal if they want to try to keep people on their side to say natural gas is something we need going forward and according to them, thi
. it is at supersonic for reentry. the reason it does is that mike adams got killed while i was working at edwards during reentry. he did not have the pitch accurate within about that much range and he did not have the yaw accurate within about that much rain, and that haunted me. i thought that was the reason we would not have commercial space flight. the pilot for spaceshipone reentry -- by the way, there is not autopilot. the only thing controlling those controls are the rudder pedals on a mock 0.3 airplane. you have the electric fin on the tail. just like a piper cub. [laughter] weird, huh? you could be at apogee in spaceshipone, eat your lunch, handoff, and do as a free entry -- safe reentry. you're not putting yourself at risk like mike adams put himself at risk. this is just a picture is google earth. out to the right is the white knight climbing 50% more altitude than an airliner. going up about 50,000 feet. from up there, about 70 miles, you're looking on the horizon. this is why we stopped flying space ships. i wanted to fly one every five months to show reliability and cost for future s
's the problem. >> alisyn: it's edward wolf and i said-- interestingly, another little tidbit in this study that he did, which is that for the top 1%, the net worth has skyrocketed, it's gone up 71% for the top 1% you've heard so much about, so the discrepancy between the middle class and the upper echelon is bigger than it's been and that may be what president obama is clinging to in his principle that on those people, it's time to raise the taxes. of course, they're just the 1% and maybe would say the that the 250,000 bar is too low for most of the country. >> dave: as for that proposal, more and more lawmakers from georgia, congressman woodall doesn't think too highly of it, in fact, equates it to nothing. watch. >> this is a giant blank sheet of paper. it's absent of any information whatsoever, because so, too, is the president's proposal for tackling the real economic challenge we have here. the real budget deficits and the real threat to economic superiority in this world, out of control federal spending. of the president of the united states, the president for four yea years, no cred
will marry a cutout of robert pattinson's character edward cull cullen. the story has grown mockery but the student is doing it as a thesis project, as a commentary on the two sides of las vegas, the real and the fantasy. she is buying a cake, rented a chapel on the las vegas strip and even planned a bachelorette party. >>> the kept did i center honored luminarieluminaries. the president and first lady attended the evening hosted by caroline kennedy which featured tributes raininging from robert deniro to bonnie raitt. the president quipped about the lifetime achievement awards. >> we continue a tradition by honoring extraordinary people who have no business being on the same stage together. we've got dave letterman alongside one of the greatest ballerinas of all time. i don't think dave dances. i worked with the speechwriters, there's no smooth transition from ballet to led zeppelin. we are trying to work the stairway to heaven metaphor and it didn't work. of course these guys also redefined the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. we do not have video of this. there were some hotel rooms tras
mention george schultz and edward chef national guard in addition si. neither of them could have done it without that support. -- shevardnadze. by the united states needed the confidence of somebody with the right swing -- wing that would be defensible. most of the democrats probably thought it was a good idea and they supported us every way as we were going toward the soviet union. >> not so much on deployment, jack. remember the nuclear freeze moment? >> i mean when we got the treaties. i would also say in the case of the soviets none of gorbachev's successors would have been capable of doing what he did to kaeu change soviet policy to understand the degree to which the predecessors' policies were not in their interest. to do t took gorbachev what is virtually impossible that is to change the institutions in your country. he ran great risks and ultimately he wasn't successful. but he was successful in most of the things that made a real difference to us. without the two of them i don't know how this was going to happen. >> do you share that view, without the two? >> i do. i happe
can have the opposite effect. nobel economist edward press scott of arizona has found that higher marginal tax rates are the reason europeans work one-third fewer hours than americans. when marginal rates are lower, prosperity flows to other sectors of society, allowing business to create jobs and new products, compete for workers to raise wages and i vest their profits, which can then be lent to other entrepreneurs. everyone gains in a free economy. as john f. kennedy put it, a rising tide lifts all boats. look at what free enpricent pris achieved? millions of new private-sector jobs were created and the stock market soared tripling in value over eight years. the lower tax rates and reduced regulatory burden produce add more robust economy and a more robust economy meant more revenue for government. similar resulted attended the tax rate reductions during the presidency of george w. bush. many policy-makers have forgotten these lessons. in 2008, america's score in the index of economic freedom has declined significantly -- i mean, since 2008, to the point where we are no longer c
is edward joseph. i'm with johns hopkins sais. great to be here today. great discussion. in fact, i'd like to quote further on a comment that shadi made about the legitimacy of the document, which to me is the key question. and after all, we were talking about a referendum on the constitution, it's not a referendum on a law. the constitution is the foundation for egypt's democracy. and if i could, shadi, ask you and khaled, to probe further, assuming of course that it passes, which is very likely to happen, do you believe that fundamentally egyptians across the spectrum will accept this constitution as legitimate? even if they decide to participate in parliamentary elections which shadi raised as a possibility, even if they decide to participate, will they say, "yes, this is our constitution. it passed. i may not like it but i accept it." just to round the question out, is there a sense at all among liberals that, "hey, we were the ones fighting this revolution. you guys were 'johnny come lately. we were the ones who were there at the beginning and this is our revolution," and in that sens
